Most reliable vehicle for time owned, 4 years.

This vehicle was purchased as a replacement for a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trail Hawk LEMON!!!!! One of Jeep’s poor transmission designs (9 speed) that they sold knowing of the transmissions defects. This Ford Explorer is an exceptional vehicle!!!

Happy car ownet

We live in Galveston so there is always a risk of high water and the potential to evacuate. We have several animals and this vehicle will fit our needs.

Worst vehicle I’ve owned

Nothing but problems from the get go. Bought extended warranty never covers what’s wrong. Awful experience Had problems with blend door, air conditioning and the ride is awful.

2.4

worst car ever

With only 24,500 miles, the front steering started making a noise, like a creaking wooden sailing ship. It din't do it all the time, so we thought maybe it was just under wet conditions. Around 26,000 mi, it would make the noise more often. It could only be heard from within the passenger cabin. Took it in to see what was up, and found that the front suspension strut & coil assembly needed to be replaced! The left strut was not centered on the mount. The right side was also off. Because we owned a second car that was driven during the winter, we had surpassed our 3 year warranty date! Had it pay for the replacement, and now it is doing the same thing! This is our first and last Ford!

Most spacious and comfortable car I've had!

This car met my needs. It is spacious for my 3 kids and their friends, with plenty of room on the third row sit. The remote key and keyless start is very useful, specially summer time, when you can leave the car locked but running, so the AC is still cooling.

Nice, but Ford needs to fix their SYNC problem

Only had it for 2 weeks now. Nice, but the Ford SYNC has a major issue, no bluetooth and costly to fix. Rides nice, nice interior.

We love our Explorer

So far, our Explorer is paying for itself. We get great gas mileage and a smooth ride. The technology is taking us oldtimers some time to learn but so far is great. We would buy another if we needed one.

Great experience.

Has lots of leg room. Drives wonderfully. Started at 50 degrees below zero. Very comfortable seats all through the vehicle. Quite interior from outside noise.

Just the right size SUV, and plenty of power

We bought this SUV preowned and have had no problems with this car. We use it for commuting and pulling a trailer from time to time. It's been a workhorse!!!

Very comfortable, stable and looks great

I enjoy driving this car, very stable because of its width. Roomy inside and rides well. A good road car as well. My wife loves it.
